Does Cancer Qualify For Disability?

The Financial Support You Need in a Tough Time

A cancer diagnosis is hard enough to process.

Your entire life is affected. Cancer can have that ripple effect. So, what do you do now?

Working isn’t feasible in your condition. But your bills don’t have any sympathy. They keep coming. How do you stay financially afloat in this tough time?

It hardly feels fair to struggle through this while you try to navigate life with cancer.

Social Security Disability benefits are meant for people in your situation. The monthly checks can be lifesaving while you focus on what matters most: your health.

Unfortunately, it’s hard to win benefits. Most people are denied on their first application.

That’s why you need someone like Mathis & Mathis on your side.

Common Types of Cancer That Qualify for Disability

Getting your benefits approved can depend on the type of cancer you have and how severe it is.

Here’s some of the types of cancer we see qualify:

  • Brain cancer
  • Breast cancer
  • Carcinoma
  • Kidney cancer
  • Leukemia
  • Liver cancer
  • Lung cancer
  • Lymphoma
  • Melanoma
  • Pancreatic cancer
  • Prostate cancer
  • Thyroid cancer

Even if your cancer isn’t on that list, you could still qualify. What you’ll have to prove:

  • Your cancer makes working impossible.
  • You’re unable to switch to a new line of work.
  • You won’t be able to work for at least a year.

If your cancer is more severe, you could qualify quickly. Social Security keeps a list of “compassionate allowances,” which describes the conditions it considers harsh enough to deserve expedited benefits.

We know you probably have questions—we have answers. We can even evaluate your case for free.

A Denial Isn’t the End

If you’ve been denied benefits, you know it can feel crushing.

You’re angry. We know.

It’s not fair—aren’t you the one suffering?

But you can’t give up after a denial.

Social Security has a multi-step appeals process, with chances for you to win benefits at each juncture. Your best chance to win comes at a hearing with an administrative law judge (ALJ). It’s the only time you can plead your case in person.

You don’t have to go through this alone. In fact, government statistics show you’re three times as likely to win benefits at an appeal hearing if you hire representation.

And remember: if we don’t win you benefits, you don’t owe us a thing.
